Mantan More Equaled Fuzzy Knight & Gabby Hayes!
5 May 2002 | by (Tujunga, California) – See all my reviews

Greetings & Salutations! Mantan Moreland (1902-1973) certainly was the equal to cowboy sidekicks Fuzzy Knight and Gabby Hayes and probably featured in more movies than either man, some 134 all total in 40 years of entertaining America, especially in their darkest hours in World War Two when there was little to smile about. He thrilled us in 1940 in "The Man Who Wouldn't Talk," "Chasing Trouble,' Millionaire Playboy," also known as "Glamour Boy," and in "The Girl in Room 313." He certainly should have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as he ranks right up there with all the great stars of Hollywood!
